balancing life and stuff.

Only recently have I really been able to balance everything. I sort of think it might have something to do with the fact that I'm taking time out in the day for my workout. Since March 1st, I've been working out regularly... like almost daily. It really has helped a lot. I look forward to my time to just tune in my music and go for a walk or workout on the elliptical. I think it was a healthy choice, both mentally, physically. I feel better in the morning, more clear minded... it's amazing that something so simple can really make a difference in your attitude.

Dear Blog... it's been to long.

Wow, It's been a long time. For some reason I just can't seem to keep up with the blog world... anyway here I am again. Today was Christians first birthday and it was an awesome day. Got up and decorated the house, made his cake and ran some errands. Next thing I knew his party was over and I had a mess to clean up. I'm so glad that we have a video camera so I can watch him eating his first cake again and again... it was so hilarious. He was not shy at all about just digging in :) I still can't believe that a year ago I was in the hospital and at about this time (11:29 pm) I was probably crying and asking the nurse to take him in the nursery because I was so tired and had not slept in almost 2 days and he wouldn't stop crying... haha what a day that was. It's fun to look back at it, but I'm in no rush for that to be reality again. Well better go to bed, got work in the morning :)

Poor Baby...

Well, Christian had to go to the Doctors today. My little baby got a cold. I'm not really sure where from, but my guess it is from the church nursery. He did get some medicine, hopefully it clears up soon. I feel so bad for him. Love you pumnkin!

Baby food.

Sunday, me and Josh went to walmart and stocked up on some jars of baby food. Well Josh just had to get a jar of Chicken and chicken broth. For some reason he wanted Christian to try meat. Well, yesterday I opened it up to feed him some and His face was priceless. If i could upload pictures i would upload one but he deffinetly didn't like it. I smelled the jar and I almost threw up, it smelled like cat food. That was my final decision maker right there that I'm going to make my own baby food. You never know what you're going to get when you buy it. I really think that is was cat food. Yuck.

Sundays are for rest.

Yesterday was probably the best sunday that we'd had for quite a while. Nobody was sick, Josh didn't have to work. We started the day out quietly, not with the baby waking us up. Actually I had to wake up him to give him a bath. We then went out to eat and went to church. The service was good, AND I actually got to enjoy it because I put the baby in the nursery and didn't feel bad about it for once. I think its because its a little older now, because when he was just a newborn, it was hard for me to put him in there. After church we went by walmart, and grabbed a bunch of baby food. I've started buying the jars instead of the plastic because I want to start making my own baby food, and i need jars to put it in. After walmart, we headed over to Joshs friends house, were we just sat outside and had conversation. It was nice, after being stuck in the house for a week that is exactly the kind of day I need. After that we came home, Josh made dinner and we just sat around. It was a perfect day. A little bit of everything. Church, friends, and relaxing. :)

(Oh i forgot, before we left for church, Josh was looking for his wallet and it turns out that I washed it... ooops)

baby weight...

I regret now, eating all that ice cream when I was pregnant. I am determined, though, to get this last 10 pounds of baby weight off before October. That leaves me about a month and a half to get on the ball. I have a exercise video that I do, but its hard to keep doing the same thing everyday. I have yet to find a diet that I can actually stick too.

Anyways, on a different note, Josh started a different job this week. He's happy so that makes me happy. I just wish his hours weren't so chaotic. I never know if hes going to be home at 2 o'clock in the afternoon or 8 o'clock at night. It drives me crazy, and it makes dinner hard to make, not knowing when to start making it. I think I'll just do what my mom did. Make it at the same time everyday, and put a plate away for him. I guess that makes sense. I don't like eating so late into the day, thats probably part of my weight problem. haha

It's been forever.

It seems like it has been forever since I last wrote. I guess it has been like six months. The baby has came and grown. He was only 6.8 lbs when he was born and now he is nearly 20 lbs. Next month he will be six months old already, where does the time go? I can't imagine how much bigger he will get in the next year. I'm very excited to watch him grow though. I was supposed to start going to college this month. Unfortunatly the financial aspect of it didn't go as planned. I guess it could be a good thing or bad, depending on which way you look at it. I wasn't to bummed out because i'm happy to be able to spend my time with the baby, not trying to get school work done. He's finally to the age where he can interact with you and I don't want to miss a thing. It seems like he will be crawling soon. He already gets up on all fours, but all he can do now is go backward. I don't know what I'll do when he starts crawling! Everything will have to be moved up, up, up :) Well i better go, I hear him walking up for his nap.
